Jelly Roll Quilt Along

In the spirit of actually learning something about quilting and not fizzling out before I even really begin, I have decided to join in on a Jelly Roll Quilt Along sponsored by Moose on the Porch Quilts. I'm using a jelly roll* of Frolic by Sandy Gervais for Moda that I procured on ebay, and managed to conquer the first block on Wednesday night. Here it is, though I swear the colors look better in real life...

*For the record, a jelly roll is a whole collection of fabric (so they all somewhat go together) that is cut into 2.5"x44" strips and then rolled up into a little "jelly roll" bundle. Thus, you get a big selection of fabrics without having to buy tons of yardage. You can also buy "charm packs" (5"x5"), honey buns (1.5" x 44"), layer cakes (10"x10"), turnovers (6" right triangles) and probably more bundles that I don't know about. Anyway, these little bundles are too cute to resist, and my collecting nature is kicking in BIG TIME. Ebay and Etsy are my worst enemies right now.


  1. omg sarah, the fact that they're named after treats is really making quilting appeal to me...
